BEDMINSTER, NJ – On election night, New Jersey incumbent Democrat Tom Malinowski was re-elected. At least, that’s what the Associated Press said just hours after polls closed Tuesday night.
“Democrat Tom Malinowski wins reelection to U.S. House in New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District,” the AP reported.
Did he really? At this point maybe, maybe not.
The liberal media called the New Jersey congressional race between Democrat Incumbent Tom Malinowski and Republican Tom Kean, Jr. within 24 hours of the polls closing on Election Day. Malinowski had a commanding lead over Kean, the son of former New Jersey GOP Governor Tom Kean, but as voting continued and last-minute ballots and provisional ballots are being counted, Kean has shrunk that lead to just 4,200 votes.
As of Friday evening, Malinowski held a slim 208,633 to 204,294 vote lead over Kean and it’s shrinking by the day. With approximately 32,000 ballots left to be counted, we have seen statewide that late ballots are predominantly Republican. After messaging by Trump and state GOP officials to use ballot boxes and provisional ballots, and a heavy Republican voter turnout could flip New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District red.
Just 24 hours ago, Kean trailed Malinowski by over 8,000 votes. The Democrat was up on Kean by 10,000 votes on Wednesday and if the trend keeps up, Kean might just be declared the winner of this race.
Both candidates have maintained radio silence on social media as ballots continue to be counted.
